    Hoover's reputation among historians has been improving for quite a while.

    And then he coasted thanks to affirmative action and racial quotas. Right into the cliche'd community organizer role-except this one went to Harvard.

    I frequently view lectures put on by the hoover institute and even they aren't huge fans.

    Your first half was correct. A development in the progressive historiography (by that I mean, the published body of historical research surrounding the Progressive Movement of the early 20th century) had started to remind scholars and any other readership that Hoover was perhaps America's "forgotten progressive," if in part because of his pre-Presidential activities. In other ways it was also because we got over the silly idea that the President of the United States somehow perpetrated the biggest economic collapse in the country's history and because many of the ideas FDR promoted came from Hoover (sometimes only increased in emphasis).

    Please forgive me if this is in the wrong section. Not really sure where to put it. I was thinking political platforms, but in the interview Bush said that he is genuinely wanting just to talk about his father. It was as non-political as you can get.

    Here are some highlights:
    Both recent Presidents have written about their fathers. While Obama hardly ever knew his, Bush's father lived to see and praised his son becoming President.
    Bush has a deep loving relationship with his father.
    Bush 41 never wrote a memoir and his story is often overshadowed.
    Bush 41 refused to help Bush 43 on major decisions except in an effort to make him laugh, smile or feel loved.
    The Bush's don't think of themselves as a dynasty. Each man had different advisers, political beliefs, and were President during different times in History.
    The Bush's and the Clintons are actually quite friendly. Bush said that if/when Jeb beats Hilary. His friendship with Bill will remain in tact.
    Obama has great admiration for Bush 41. It is unknown if they talk regularly.
    Obama has only once called Bush 43 and that was after the Osama Bin Laden raid. He doesn't seek advice from other Presidents. Unlike, any other President.

    Another thing I noticed was how humbled Bush 43 was in this interview. I can detect most BS a mile away and I didn't see any of that in the interview. It is easy for me to point out if someone is just trying to sell me a book just to gain publicity, but he just wants to talk about his father. To anyone that would listen.

    He seemed reluctant to even answer specific questions about world events like ISIS. He said he was happy to stay out of the limelight because he doesn't like attacking people or the Presidency. He thinks the people have complete control over the electoral process, as proven by the recent Republican wave.

    Let me know if I have left anything out. Here is part of the interview. The longest I could find: Exclusive: George W. Bush on growing up in the Bush family | Hannity | Fox News

    My god what a pandering ass Hannity is!

    Unfortunately, we are probably going to be stuck with her in 2016, and that is not good. She is a very strong Neoliberal, who is owned by the corporations. Pretty much the same as Romney, and here is another sad fact. Both Hillary and Romney have been bought and paid for. However, Republicans supported Romney due to the R by his name, and Democrats will support Hillary due to the D by her name. Never mind that neither is patriotic, and would sell out their country in a heartbeat. People only care about the D or the R. And, of course, Obama kissed the asses of the banksters, and kept them rich with OUR freakin' money, and Dems supported him too. Why? Again, because he is a Democrat. Pathetic.

    I'd like to think that Romney is caput. He had his shot and lost. But Hillary is sad as hell.

    You'd be guessing incorrectly; I was avoiding the temptation to scoff at the pitiable claim that Obama had to overcome being middle-class and the incorrect characterization of him as multi-racial when he is, in fact, bi-racial. Would you like to discuss the fatherly influence of Obama's "Uncle" Frank (Marshall Davis)?

    Does anyone understand why the leftists are still going on about "Bush lies"? Do they genuinely not know any better or are they so determined to create a myth that the truth is simply ignored and discarded?
